Fable Anniversary joins the already-available Fable II and Fable III in backwards compatibility. Side title Fable II: Pub Games is also available.
We reviewed Fable Anniversary back in 2014, and said it was “worth a look”.

“Whether you’re feeding the Nostalgia Monster or visiting the past for the first time like me, the first Fable title offers a solid story and gameplay experience,” Matt wrote in his review. “Introducing many of the concepts and story elements that became the keystones of the later titles, it’s a great way to get a feel for how the franchise evolved, as we look forward to Fable Legends sometimes in the future.”
Whoops — Fable Legends was unceremoniously cancelled, so stop looking forward to that. This backwards compatible release might be the only Fable you’re getting for a good long while.
If you’ve a digital copy of a backwards compatible game, you’ll find it for download on your Xbox One’s My Games and Apps section. If you own a physical disc of a backwards compatible game, simply insert it into your Xbox One to begin the download process.
